Milena Naef questions ‘existing’ structures that are inherent to herself. The work tries to create the right manifestation of the assumed duality between body and mind.
Naef translates characteristics of a subjective experience into materials. She transforms the mental into physical to find a new relationship between the two. Once tangible, the interaction with the concrete material allows for space to ‘open’ in which a given context can be changed.
The body itself, with its physical presence and absence, becomes a vital aspect of the work.
Naef’s works raise questions. When do structures inhibit or liberate us and our physical form? What is the consequence of the fact that our bodies are always filling space?
